  1. Recently when trying to sign into Hotmail,I get the message"something went wrong try again later! This computer is 2 years old i7 and I did have Hotmail Access no problem.I can access Hotmail on my old P4--so it is definetly something has changed in my computer.The msn forums are useless--as I tried their solutions--ie internet options etc--firewalls and such--to no avail!!

    How exactly are you trying to login? Have you tried hotmail.com

    Try another browser. Also try clearing your whole cache/temp files.

    If you tell us what browser you're using now, we can help you do that.

    Can you post a screenshot?

    It's not exactly a fix, but you could try the 'upgrade to Outlook' button and see what happens. It's a better service, too! :)

    Try to use other microsoft email sevices like outlook.com, live.com.

    also, for reasons I don't know, there is an intermittent internet connection when using windows 8 (at least on my 3 desktop machines with windows 8 pro x64)
